Spring Bridal Shower

This past weekend I got to be a part of a bridal shower for one of my most fabulous friends. I love bridal showers – such a fun time to celebrate love and all things happy.  Here are a couple snapshots from the afternoon:

Ornament Advent Calendar – Day 1, 2 and 3

As you know this I’m putting  a spin on the advent calendar and using ornaments to countdown to Christmas.  I’m having so much fun adding a new ornament each day – definitely gets you in the holiday spirit! You can check out the first three days of ornaments below.  I’ll post a round-up of the ornaments each Tuesday leading up to December 25th.  What are you doing to mark the days until Christmas?

Ornament Advent Calendar

December is here!  This year I thought it would be fun give the traditional advent calendar a twist – I’m using decorations instead of presents or candy.  Each day we’ll add a new ornament to the advent board as we countdown to Christmas – simple and pretty! To start I covered a cork board with some linen fabric from Tonic Living,  added some number tags that I purchased on Etsy and used some upholstery nails to put it all together.  Today we added our first ornament –  a cute little glittery reindeer from Crate and Barrel. I can’t wait to add one each day! EmiSignature

Decking the halls

We started to get into the festive spirit over the weekend.  It still is a little early but with all that freezing weather this weekend there was nothing better than pulling out the Christmas decorations, decorating the tree, sitting in front of the fire and enjoying a nice glass of wine!  Here are a couple of snapshots around here…

Cute Christmas Cards from Minted

I heart cards and real mail.  Checking the mailbox at Christmastime is the best!!!  (Sidenote: We really should try and send mail more often during the year…)  I’ve been checking the Christmas cards out at Minted. There are some fabulous finds that you can personalize with photos, text, colours AND all of the cards are created by independent designers .  A roundup of a couple of my favs below. Now I have to decide on one…
